Seems like a nce bike, but the Z750 is already available at a similar price.



What do these manufacturers have against 750s anyhow? Why would anyone pick one of those faggy weak-sister torqueless 600s? It's not like even 1% of the 600 buyers ever race their bike.

Looks like a nice bike. but the should put a de-tuned GSXR 750 motor in it and bring that one to the states. I own a Z750 and Except for the vibration issue its a great bike. The GSXR 750 would make a great motor. Also Suzi needs to offer some kind of windscreen for the USA model.



Hey Suzuki! when will we see a 1200cc SV/TL??

I started out on a EX500, moved to the Z750, after this summer I'm ready for the BIG time!

The biggest difference bwtween North America and everywhere else [including Europe] is that we use motorcycles as recreational vehicles and Europeans, et al grow up using bikes as their only transportation.



Parking is impossible for cars in Europe, but bikes can park on the sidewalk or in pedestrian areas. Traffic is horrendous and bikes can white line it with cars moving over to give them room to pass. Gas is almost double the price as NA. And even car and bike insurance is more expensive.

So-kids start on 50cc bikes and graduate to 125, 150, and if they are serious, 400cc bikes. The older, richer and commited bikers will buy 600-1200cc bikes for touring or long distance running.



In North America, you can't even buy a good 125-400cc bike [other than dirt bike] for transportation in the city or commute from the suburbs. Beginner riders have nothing to start on. Ironically, in Vancouver, the Motorcycle Safety Foundation course uses a 175cc Honda for training- that is illegal to buy in Canada.

This bike has one of the few underseat exhausts I like the look of (Ducati and a very few others also). It's also the bike I would gladly trade my 2006 GSX-R600 for. I also would have gladly traded the 05 for it. Unfortunately, I am one of the 6 people in the United States who would actually buy one. Everyone else says they look neat and would be more practical than their current bikes, but I would actually buy one. I love my GSXR on the track, but in town it licks the sweat off a dead man's balls.

Stroke of real genius! I like the way they set the twin cans under the tail (nothing new, Triumph ST), front turn signals on tank cowl (wider cowl sets up a faired line), new head light, tail lights, instruments... Whats not to like? The fat tank is in...
